          Abstract

          This paper explores the association between common facility space occupancy and spatial configuration and aims to have higher space occupancy by spatial design. The spatial configuration includes geometric metrics and topologic metrics from Space syntax theory.The association between space occupancy and spatial configuration in twelve nursing homes is evaluated using the multiple linear regression model. The results show that spatial integration, connectivity, and area size are significant factors to space occupancy correlation. Therefore, allocating space with higher spatial integration, more connectivity, and the large area size are three effective ways to increase space occupancy in Japanese nursing homes.
